Some honest discussion, and please don't tell me to get a Jersey :roll: From those that raise Hereford? If I got a tame bred heifer, do you think she could be taught to become a family milk cow? I know they won't give gallons and gallons of milk and in advance, and I Don't want a goat. I think that the Herefords have the best looking udders around, and the teats look like they would be just right for hand milking. I've also read where the milk is high in butterfat. I'm thinking about getting a couple for this purpose. They would live out their lives in comfort. I hope that no one takes offense at my bluntness; however I've broached the subject of a non dairy breed cow as a home milk cow on a couple of forums. Sometimes the responses are not pleasant. Any opinions.
